Usually the coolness comes from a large coil of plastic tubing in the refer compartment that stores the water. Check that the refer compartment is cool enough. Also see if running a large glass or two becomes cool again and stays cool for a while. Usually the very first 1/2 glass may be warm until the "cool" water that is stored in the coil of tubing finally makes its way to the dispensor.

I just got a side by side fridge with the house we bought and I have noticed the same thing. The water cable runs under the fridge before it enters the door, and this is the same place the warm air from the cooling coils blows out so it warms the water in the tube. Has anyone found a way to reroute the water tube?

SOURCE: I have an LG LSC26905TT side by side fridge

When the filter freezes up, the outside casing may have cracked and will leak water when you dispense water through the door.  You will need to have the filter replaced and that should take care of the problem.  But the filter should never have frozen in the 1st place.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to see what's going on inside the refrigerator.

SOURCE: water/ice dispenser sticking on

We had a problem with the water/ice dispenser on our 5-year-old LG SxS Refrigerator (LRSC 26930TT). In a panic to stop the water flow, the rubber activator boot was pulled off. The dispenser stopped once the button attached to the back of the boot was removed. Nothing was physically broken (i.e., parts intact) but the challenge was to get things (especially the boot) back in place. The key for me was to use patience: researched Internet for pointers (not too helpful), looked for schematics (even less fruitful) and exhaustively examined the panel on refrigerator (to help reverse engineer). Okay, here’s how I disassembled and reassembled without breaking any tabs or other pieces. Assuming your unit is similar, the panel is on the freezer door on the left side. You can lock the dispenser (using panel button) to preclude undesired water/ice while working. Note: the outer bezel (edge of panel) is secured by screws and should not be messed with. The main panel has tabs on all four sides. I used three screwdrivers (small to average in size) to pry the panel off. Pry the main panel working through the seam between the bezel and panel. Work your way around starting from the lower left or upper left corner. Each side of the panel has 3 or 4 tabs. Methodically work your way around using moderate force to pop the tabs loose. Once the panel is loose, you’ll need to disconnect the electrical connector at the upper left. The plug comes off and reattaches easily…don’t pull on the wires, use the plastic connector itself. Wiggle the panel free. Now you can get to the back of the boot retention bezel…the ultimate goal. Carefully push the bezel’s securing tabs (x3) through the panel and reattach the rubber boot. I used needle nose pliers to carefully pull each rubber nib through their applicable hole on the bezel. Now leave the boot/bezel assembly to the side—it’s the last step to reassembly. Note how the main panel tabs fit into their receiving slots/flanges. Reattach the electrical connector, snaps right on, and maneuver center of panel into recessed area, around ice chute/water nozzle. Slide the right and bottom sides on first—flanges, not slots for tabs—then align remainder of panel. Using moderate force, pop (punch) the remaining tabs back into their respective slots. The main panel will seat over the bezel. Now align and snap boot/bezel back into place. Finis! (No guarantees, but this procedure worked like a charm for me.)

SOURCE: The water will not dispense,

The inlet water valve solenoid has failed. The remedy is to replace the inlet water valve itself. This particular inlet water valve has 3 solenoids on it. You can see the inlet water valve as item 619A this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5520906&diagram_id=28703137#d28703137

If your good with a meter... unplug the unit. and slide each of the connectors of the solenoid bak just far enough to check the resistance of the solenoids. They all should have similar resistance. I am pretty sure one of your solenoids had a bad coil.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hello what temp should i have my fridge/freezer at the freezer unit is working but the top is warm, thanks, Sheryl


Sheryl -

Most manufacturer's suggest 0 deg F for the freezer, and 34 deg F for fresh food compartment. You determine the fresh food temperature by filling a 6 to 8 oz glass with cold water and placing a thermometer (capable of reading 32 deg F) in the water. Place the glass & thermometer on a shelf in the fridge. Allow it to assume the temperature on the fridge and hour or so. The glass of water is to minimize rapid increase in temperatures seen when the door opens.

Make your adjustments from there. Allow temperatures to stabilize for up to 24 hours if the fridge is full, much less if empty before making additional changes.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

The hot water goes into the machine at a slower rate than the cold water does. Open the hot spigot (water valve) behind the washing machine all the way open, then open the cold spigot just enough to get the desired 'warm' temperature of the water going into the machine while the machine is filling. You may have to shut the door to allow water to flow. Remember that it takes a minute or so for hot water to reach the machine from hot water tank.

Dont leave freezer door open it will cause alot of problems. The ice maker will not call for water until the temp in freezer is cold enough. Remove the ice jam. If you remove from back of freezer it helps alot. Pull out of the back wall and remove ice be sure to put it back the way it was. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

Not getting cool water from dispenser in door


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

ZANUSSI ZWD162701 washing always comes out cold - WHY?


Washers are meant to rinse in cold water, so clothes should come out cold.
If you are not sure if it is getting hot, then select a very hot wash, and feel the door glass periodically, it should gradually get hotter, if it does not , then it is washing in cold water only.
This could mean that the heater element has gone.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My washing machine has run a 40o wash with cold water - have tried again and the front feels cold???


AT 40oC, I would not expect the door glass to feel hot, but to check if the heater is working o/k, run it on a 90oC wash programme.
The door glass should feel quite hot.
If it it still feels cold after say 30 mins or so, then I would suspect that the heater is not working.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
